The Wolfe brothers’ hail from Manzanilla and both Anton and Glenton started their professional careers at North East Stars and spent 4 years at the Sangre Grande based club, and in recent times they have attracted the attention of National Football Coach Leo Beenhakker.

Glenton Wolfe is a talented left back, just 24 years old and made his mark in the Pro League playing with North East Stars and has also caught the eyes of Mr. Beenhakker.
Jabloteh’s coach Terry Fenwick was instrumental in the signings and admitted, he has always had his eyes on the Wolfe brothers.
“They have always impressed me, I have always liked them and I am very much in favor of pushing younger players who are talented and focused on their football careers.”
“Anton is an unselfish center forward, that can be lethal in and around the penalty area—I think he has great potential.”
“As for Glenton, I think he has great ability, he is also a left sided player which is an added advantage—he is a-no-nonsense type defender.”
Anton Wolfe is delighted at the opportunity, saying “I really feel good about the move, I think its for my betterment—I am honored to be attached to one of the best teams in the country, and I hope I can improve my chances of making the national team and be on plane to Germany for the World Cup.”
Glenton Wolfe is also seeing the move as a progressive one, he said “While I enjoyed my stay at North East Stars, sometimes you just have to move on, and I see this move to Jabloteh as a step in the right direction as it may open up bigger and better possibilities in terms of attracting trials in Europe.”
When contacted Jabloteh Director Toussant Boyce pointed out "We are elated to have the Wolfe brothers with the club. Jabloteh is committed to the objective of being the premier club in the CONCACAF zone. It is important to that thrust that we continue to search for and develop the best local talent available. The Wolfe brothers undoubtedly fall into that category and will be in a great squad alongside the likes of Angus Eve, Kerry Noray, Kerry Baptiste, Josh Johnson, Nigel Daniel and Keyeno Thomas to name a few. As you are aware we have qualified for the CFU Champions Cup and hence we will be playing international club football this year. Together with the World Cup coming mid-year, this coming season will be very exciting for all of our players."
Further Mr. Boyce added, "At Jabloteh, our search for the best young talent never stops. Our youth teams dominated league and cup competitions last season because they are taught football excellence by talented coaches. We are very serious about unearthing and developing youths. It is very important that people understand that our club is rooted in San Juan but belongs to the people of Trinidad and Tobago. Every talented young player from any part of the country should be able to look at Jabloteh and see us as a route, as an opportunity to play football at the highest level locally and eventually internationally."
